That’s a wrap for Design-athon 2020!

Question: What does it take to pull off an online Design-athon?

Answer: 121 participants, 29 teams, 13 mentors, 8 user testers, 3 problem statement champions, 2 Sprintbase facilitators and 1 mission to remove barriers experienced by people living with disability.

We can’t believe we have officially wrapped our first online Design-athon! In just a matter of weeks, we’ve seen teams form with people from across the globe, ideas become prototypes, the launch of websites, and many more remarkable achievements by our amazing participants.

We are so excited to present you with the winners of our 2020 Design-athon:

We want to thank Sprintbase who helped bring this experience to life, as well as our amazing Problem Statement Champions, Humphrey Hanley, Sophie Marmont, and Sukriti Chadha. In addition, this event was supported by an incredible community of remarkable humans including our judges, mentors and users testers!

On behalf of Cerebral Palsy Alliance, we thank our principal partner icare NSW as well as Microsoft and Telstra for their incredible support.

To give you a little taste of some of the highlights experienced by our participants, check out this highlight reel of their weekly Design-athon Diaries entries…

Although this is the conclusion of this event, this is just the beginning for all of our participants who want to continue their journey with us and we hope to see many of them applying for our SYD21 accelerator program!
